This weeks seCRet lOCation is a splatter of tracks from full on cowgirl country diva’s singing life’s blues, to Seatown’s top pop hip-hop artist representing to incoming Nor’leans funk monsters bouncing it. Yep’, a typical seCRet lOCation show in the Methow airspace.
Country diva’s super group Pistol Annies (Ashley Monroe, Angaleena Presley, Miranda Lambert) sing harmoniously about the sh*t side of love (Trailer For Rent), new motherhood (Housewife’s Prayer), touring (Takin’ Pills), family (Family Feud), and man-eaters (title track). Hell On Heels is a worthy listen, even if you don’t do country or western. The Pistol Annies might be blenders, but these diva’s make whorled hearts a fun ride.
Macklemore & Ryan Lewis have turned out a huge hit recording, The Heist. The track, Same Love is worth the price of admission alone. Powerful lyrics with an even more powerful message all delivered in a convincing delicate package. This track should make you say “Hell yeah!”. Or something like that. The Heist has been on repeat in the seCRet lOCation.
Nor’leans funk monsters, Dumpstaphunk, are preforming Sunday, July 21, at Winthrop Rhythm & Blues Fest. Formed in 2003 by Ivan Neville (nephew to members of the Neville Brothers) Dumpstaphunk is one of the Big Easy’s dominate funk bands today. Accolades from numerous major publications (Rolling Stone Magazine, NY Times, Guitar Player Magazine) confirm just how big an impact, Dumpstaphunk is. This’ll make you want to shake it all over… unless your dead that is.
This and more, Friday at 3pm, in the SecRet lOCation.
No hawk, more rock.
